Vikings: Valhalla is a very new spin-off to History Channel’s peculiar Vikings series. The Netflix Original will drop somewhere in 2021. Here’s everything we know!
Vikings: Valhalla is a historical-drama and a spin-off of the popular History Channel series, Vikings. Michael Hirst is the creator of the series. MGM productions will be producing the series.
Hirst offers his views on whether the new series will equate Vikings in scope and scale. He also gives a little glimpse into the prequel:
“It couldn’t be on a greater scale than the final episodes of my Vikings. Because the armies and the big battles we had… You really can’t get much bigger than that, actually. But what can I say? It is being made in the same places, a lot of it. We go back to Kattegat. That, of course, is the spiritual home of the Vikings. But it’s a changed Kattegat. It’s an established… one of the biggest ports really, trading ports in Europe. It’s grown in size and significance. The King of England has become a Viking. The Vikings have overrun most of England and they own Normandy.”
Vikings: Valhalla Season 1 Release Date:
No official announcement regarding the date is on the table yet.
However, the filming might start in mid-2021 following the COVID regulations.
Who Will Star in the Series?
Sad to say, the star cast hasn’t been revealed as of now. But in the months to come we can expect the news about the same.
However, the series will follow some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived including Leif Erikson, Harald Harada, Freydis, and the Norman King William the Conqueror.
There is a minimal chance that stars as such as Travis Fimmel, Alexander Ludwig, and Katheryn Winnick could appear in flashbacks.
What to Expect?
The storyline is set over 100 years after the events of Vikings went down. The end of the Viking era approaches as the Kingdom of England holds its head high against the Scandinavian raiders. The future of England is now transformed since King Edward the Confessor dies and three lords are after the English throne.
Hirst comments on the connection of Valhalla to the original Vikings show. He says that Jeb pays attention to the mythology of Vikings. He adds that whenever they meet in the great hall in Kattegat, they chat about the great legends who used to sit in the same hall at the same table who are now mythic characters even within the show, even within Vikings: Valhalla. That’s a really great connection and effect.
Everything connects in a useful, and interesting, and fascinating way.
